    I am getting anxious for Anxious Month to start. I can’t wait!

    Subtle anxiety is how you feel, when after getting drunk, you wake up with a sore behind, and an $100 not in your hand.

  4. Huu Yuu | 4:03 am |

    Well, I feel asleep now; subtle enough?

  5. Marum | 4:06 am |


  6. Huu Yuu | 4:10 am |

    the warm prompt was not subtle enough … creating an anxious!

  7. algernon | 4:11 am |

    So itsca general thing

  8. algernon | 4:12 am |

    But only at this time

  9. Marum | 4:15 am |

    I remember, when my Asian lady had a look on her face, like that too.

  10. coffeebot | 4:19 am |

    Now hand me a knife, Amir.

  11. jjhitt | 4:26 am |

    I must be a few days off, I’m still feeling Gnawing Doubt.

  12. Yu No Hoo | 4:30 am |

    The fist sign of subtle anxiety is a blank look on your face.

  13. Droll not Troll | 4:31 am |

    She’s anxious because she feels a warm prompt and the time periods on the sign are for when the public toilets are closed.

  14. Droll not Troll | 4:34 am |

    Someone below the photo is finding out how the girl feels now.

  15. Droll not Troll | 4:39 am |

    It’s normal to feel anxious when your colon is in an odd place.

  16. Frank Burns | 4:44 am |

    No, it was just gas.

  17. Yu No Hoo | 4:44 am |

    That expression is totally off the wall.

  18. Droll not Troll | 5:12 am |

    When you’re walking blindfolded across a concrete floor and suddenly you step on something soft…..

    More Engrish weirdness!!

    The Hangul at the top says “Tuscon Gallery New York”.
    The 4 entries in Hangul above the anxious Engrish and the 3 entries below it are all personal names: Kim Yon-bae, Jang Tae-won, etc.

    I guess whomever is supposed to be picked for July whatever to 8/14 is supposed to be an apprehension-inducing surprise!

  20. Pete | 6:34 am |

    Caption below her waist not shown:

    “Obvious relief”

  21. Pete | 7:03 am |

    She certainly does have that look of “obvious relief”.

    So my guess is that she just made a Pungency.

    In which case she also needs to creating a clean!

  22. Geo | 7:22 am |

    I got that feeling too whenever I woke up for school at 7-something AM and the final exam started at 8:14 AM… but my anxiety was a LOT more subtle than that.

  23. algernon | 2:00 pm |

    That time nust be for the English speakers

  24. Auntie | 4:05 pm |

    I would be pretty anxious too with that black rectangle slapped across my eyes.

  25. RT | 7:30 pm |

    i get that feeling too when i drink laxative straight from the bottle; “is it now?” “should i risk it and go out for a while without a bathroom,” i wonder.

  26. Marum | 3:57 am |

    @Auntie 1605. Oh! I thought they were singlasses.

  27. Marum | 5:40 am |

    At this point the average Australian young man faces his first philosophical decision.

    Does he try to be a great lover to his lady, or a caveman.

    Unfortunately, most opt for being Neanderthals.
